Classes & Program Description
This is our signature class and is suitable for children, ages infant - 4. This program encourages learning in a family environment. Everyone is learning, and playing together. The activities are individualized and modified to accommodate the ages of the children in the group. Younger children learn, observe, and model what the older children are doing, and the older children learn by teaching and guiding the younger children.
Our Music Lions™ class is a sophisticated class for children, ages 3-5 years, and their caregivers. At this age, children tend to be more active and identify with their peers, make new friends, learn, and challenge each other. In addition, they are ready to do activities that are more advanced for a confident and courageous little lion.

Children in this age group are entering the magical years of fantasy and vivid imagination. We will embark on a Yoga Adventure to the Jungle, the Zoo, or wherever the little imaginations of our Prancing Warriors™ take us. The joy of this class is learning and experiencing yoga and mindfulness through the art of letting go and embracing the moment. This is a parent and child class.
This group playfully dances between embracing the experience of being still and actively on the move. They are ready to take big leaps and bounds. As we go on our yoga adventures, our Power Warriors™ will take us beyond planet Earth and lands we have never been before. Like Albert Einstein once said, “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere,” and indeed it will in this class. Children will gain a sense of stability, present-moment awareness, spontaneous creativity, and the bountiful, beautiful breath of life.
